THIS MONTH’S MEETING TOPIC: Childhood messages
Many of you have asked for an in-depth discussion regarding “Nature vs. Nurture,” whether the Enneagram is innate “spiritual DNA,” or whether it is derived from our childhood and upbringing. According to Riso and Hudson, after tens of thousands of Enneagram Institute’s tests, interviews, and student feedback, the Enneagram is, indeed, spiritual DNA – we’re born with this particular “lens,” (as Jerry Wagner, Ph.D., calls it), and filter our life’s experiences through the lens of our EnneaType. That being said, Nurture does play a significant role in our development of our belief systems, ego structures, and defense mechanisms. In this very interactive session, we will explore both “unconscious” childhood messages and “lost” childhood messages to test these hypotheses, and to examine how these childhood messages may still influence how we live our lives today.
